Manchester United’s search for a new permanent manager continues, with Mauricio Pochettino the favourite.
Ralf Rangnick has been appointed on an interim basis until the end of the season, though Michael Carrick is set to preside over a third game as caretaker manager on Thursday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked last month after a poor run of results at the end of a trophy-less tenure.
However,Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has emerged as a contender for the vacant Man Utd managerial role, claims The Telegraph.
The current Italy head coach, who led the Azzurri to the Euro 2020 title, is under “careful consideration” by United chiefs, according to the report.
Mancini is contracted with Italy until 2026 on a lucrative deal but may potentially be available to take over from Rangnick pending Italy’s World Cup qualification play-offs in March.
